NANDALALA b/w KAMINEY and MYNAA!


Though delayed by more than a year, finally got a chance to watch Vishal Bharadwaj's Kaminey. Nothing much in the content of the story, but Vishal succeeds in making the plot interesting with his music and visual compositions and also in giving a new 'couple' to Bollywood...



Inspired from a Japanese movie plot, Mysskin again proves his strength in handling the emotions and in well choreographed and interesting shot takings in his latest movie Nandalala.


Though he looks fine with his acting skills trying it out for the first time, he fails in coming up with a gripping story. Good visuals and the emotional peaks of the movie may not change its box office results, but it's Ilayaraja who proves why he is the best, with some great background score and songs.








Finally its Prabu Solomon who walks away with a block buster, which I guess mostly after a decade of him working as an independent director. Again not a strong story line, but Mynaa with the main characters and its refreshing surroundings wins in the end with an emotionally touching climax.














In the memory of Mynaa...

SUPERSTAR - STAR = ...

Directs a block buster...

10+ years away from full time movie direction...
Comes back again with another block buster, in a new dimension...

Thats the ability of a genius and
his name is James Cameron and the movies are Titanic in 2D and Avatar in 3D.











Though its not fair and logical to compare the two film makers, the usual question that the recent hype asks is, is UPPI really back with a block buster after 10 years of direction break (or busy acting career)? My personal opinion and wish after watching the 'title less' film is... to time travel a year back and request him not to direct the 'title less' film... I got a feeling that he actually time traveled 10 years ahead from 2000 and made this 'title less' film with the same old thinking, knowledge and the mind.

Though I was aware that I can't expect an extraordinary movie this time... I was atleast expecting a decent entertainer, knowing most of his abilities. But it was really disappointing. In my previous post I was wishing them success. But now I can only pray...
